From Get Rich Slowly:
“Doing deals and running property is not for everybody. If the thought of chasing a deadbeat tenant, or mud wrestling with a lender, or unplugging a toilet grosses you out, find a more civilized way to make a living. In order to get good, you are going to have to rub your nose in the business until you have a really good feel for what will work and what won’t. And that’s true even if the closest you get to the bricks and sticks at the peak of your career is a conference room high above Midtown Manhattan. If you don’t understand the practicalities of property leasing and operation, you will make dumb decisions.”
"Luis Belmonte is one of the most insightful, pragmatic and entertaining real estate professionals I have had the pleasure of working with. They just don't make them like Luis anymore."--Hamid R. Moghadam, Chairman & CEO, Prologis, Inc.
“No one has worked on more properties, in more locations, with more challenges than Luis. He is experienced, wise, and entertaining: a great combination. His advice is a roadmap for experienced real estate people and novices. Take his advice, and you will have a head start on success.”—Bob Burke, Co-founder of AMB Property Corporation
